Daraa - SMART

 
On Monday, activists reported that the Syrian government forces shelled a camp for forcibly displaced people (FDP) west of Daraa, Southern Syria, killing civilians.

Mohammad Shara, a member of the Daraa Martyrs' Documentation Office, said that the Syrian government forces shelled a camp for FDP in the town of Koya, which is controlled by the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, in the Yarmouk Basin area, killing a man, a woman, and two children. The Khalid Army is accused of pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (IS).

SMART notes that it published information based on information from activists and sources saying that suspected Russian warplanes shelled the camp, killing six civilians. Shara denied this information.

Field observers in Daraa noted that the activists have difficulty finding out details about the results of the intense bombing from Russia and the Syrian government forces on the narrow geographical area that is controlled by the Khalid Army.

In the past few days, the Khalid Army has retreated as the Syrian government forces advanced. As a result, the area controlled by the Khalid Army is reduced to about 50 square kilometers, including the villages of al-Qusayr, al-Arada, Beit Ara, Koya and Maaraba. The Khalid Army controlled more than 85 square kilometers at the beginning of July.

The Syrian government launched a military campaign against the Khalid Army-controlled areas in the Yarmouk Basin, after individual agreements with the Free Syrian Army and Islamic Battalions in other areas outside Syrian government control in Daraa.
